Work starting soon on new road layout to increase safety and ease congestion

Wednesday, 25 July, 2018

Work will begin on Monday 6 August to upgrade the roundabout that brings together Brockhampton Road, Southmoor Lane, Harts Farm Way and Brookside Road in a bid to increase safety and ease congestion.

These improvements will take place between 09.30 and 16.00hrs to reduce disruption during peak times. However, you should still expect some delays as outside of these hours they may still be cones and barriers on the carriageway to protect the work being done.

A new kerbed roundabout, pedestrian islands and a change to road markings, to create two new lanes, will allow for a better flow of traffic.  Cyclists will also benefit from an off-road cycle route through the junction.

The £400k programme, funded by Hampshire County Council and through Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) contributions made to Havant Borough Council, is expected to take four months to complete.

CIL is a fee that local authorities can choose to charge on new developments. The money is then used to support development by funding infrastructure that the council, local community and neighbourhoods want.

Councillor Tim Pike, Deputy Leader and Cabinet lead for Finance and Regeneration said “Multiple accidents have been reported at the junction over recent years. By undertaking this work, we will be creating a safer environment for all road users, including pedestrians and cyclists.”
